Last Year's Event

In honor of Fathers Day, a special family bridge event will be held co-sponsored by Unit 503, modeled after our normal Parent-Child Duplicate games (featured in the January 2015 issue of the ACBL Bridge Bulletin). Each pair should consist of a parent/grandparent, partnering their child/grandchild. At a typical SiVY Bridge Parent-Child game, the "child" is a youth bridge player (aged 25 & Under). For this special version of the Parent-Child game, "children" can be:

If you have an appropriate partnership for this game in your family, please make an effort to join us. Bridge is an activity parents and children can enjoy together their whole lives, while helping keep the whole family's minds sharp. If you don't have a Parent-Child pair in your family yet, we recommend you get started creating one!.

At last year's SPECIAL FATHERS DAY GAME, there was great turnout, so we were able to offer a separate section for the newer players. We expect the same again.

Britt and Olivia d'Arezzo taught their dad, Tom, to play in the couple of months before last year's Fathers Day game. Olivia-Tom finished first in Section B (while Britt partnered her grandmother in Section A, for more experienced players), and Tom was hooked.
